3rd grade landscapes

Our 3rd graders have been working on some Fall landscapes. I have taught this project in three different ways for some variety. All of the classes learned a little bit about perspective.  The students learned about foreground, middle ground and background.  They learned how to draw their trees so that they appeared to be closer, or further away based on where they placed them on the paper and what size they drew them.  

Some other classes painted beautiful birch trees at night using a paint scraper.  I hope you enjoy our finished products. I apologize that I don't have photos of the process, but it was quite the messy experience so I couldn't quite grab the camera :).
